    Hi my name is Erik , I'm in the US and for the past few weeks I've picked up an interest for handcrafted knives I've been watching YouTube videos and there're a few ones that don't require lots of tools which I believe are good to get my feet wet. Is there a thread that discuss the basic tools and material to get started ? Well just wanted to introduce myself really looking forward to see what you guys make.

    Welcome to the forum and to this OCD we call knife making.

    Here's a thread that talks about some basic tools for getting started.

    This one talks about some good books for beginners.

    We also have a basic primer on heat treating.

    You should also checkout our thread on shop safety.

    Hope that helps get you started. Whenever you have questions, ask away. The folks here are always ready to help.
